Sen. Bernie Sanders sounds alarm on GOP health care bill
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders said on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” Sunday that as the House GOP-passed health care bill is debated behind closed doors in the Senate, Democrats should do “everything they can” to oppose the legislation in “any way” they can.
“Throwing 23 million people off of health insurance is beyond belief. Now, in the Senate what you have is you have I believe it is 10 Republicans working behind closed doors to address 1/6th of the American economy,” Sanders said.
“The average Republican doesn’t even know what’s in that legislation,” he said. “My understanding is that it will be brought forth just immediately before we have to vote on it. This is completely unacceptable.”
Sanders called the current bill the “worst piece of legislation” against working class people that he can remember in his political life in the Congress, and that the reason Republicans don’t want to bring debate out into the public is because it was a “disastrous bill.”
